Bought this to match her cappuccino cups and saucers which are beautiful pieces. This bowl looks great. The black ceramic is a lovely finish, may not suit all tastes but I find the matt finish an alternative colour pallet without looking to masculine.
A slight problem Is that the lid doesn't lock tightly on the bowl but rather sits on top of it. If you or (your guests) aren't careful in handling it, it will slide off fairly readily. You do need to get used to handling it a particular way. The price of the product can vary considerably between retailers, shop around. If like me you find one relatively cheaply (under £5) and you like using this, get a spare.
